Thanks for the heads up, Rivet. I saw that just a few minutes after you reverted that edit.
As I seem to be the only guy with administrator level other than GlyphGryph himself, you might consider contacting me directly if something like this happens again. Use my talk page for requests. I check the wiki daily, certainly more than these forums (and the forums email alert for PMs, etc seem to be broken for some reason, anyway), so I should act accordingly quite rapidly.
For this particular issue, I don’t think it requires an IP blocking. I’m also not that sure it was the mentioned user. To be fair, what that user wrote, although inappropriate both in the tone and placement, seems to be a sentiment shared by quite a lot of CataDDA players (for the curious, what was written is: Someone please make this wiki not useless & outdated.).
But what some people unfortunately don’t seem to grasp is that: 1) The wiki is that, a wiki. And a quite open one for that to new contributors (you don’t even have to register). It’s made by and for players. 2) There’s no devoted “official wiki contributor”, be it a person or a team, whose job is to keep all the pages up to date. The contributions are absolutely voluntary and proactive.
So far it seems to have worked out quite well. Most, if not all, the content inherited from the original Cataclysm wiki has been properly expanded and updated, a lot of new sections created, and an almost total restructuring of the most important sections has been going on lately (thanks to the awesome work with the bots by BMacZero and Teranos). And all this has been only possible by random players driven by pure enthusiasm and a will to contribute to this awesome game while helping others.
The content of the wiki could be better? Certainly. And it becomes better with each new contribution, which happens almost daily. It could be better organized? Probably. Although I personally like the “anarchic order” achieved so far. But if someone is willing to form a team of organized contributors to ensure the wiki is absolutely up to date then feel free to do so.
Finally, given the current speed of the game’s development (which is extremely fast, for those unaware) the wiki will never be up to date, or not for a long time. Particularly for those who play the bleeding edge versions. If the wiki aims to anything is to get the info of at least the last stable version.
